Rad poster: I never finish anythi

Now here’s a poster I can relate to much more than pretending I know how to keep calm and carry on!

Now here’s a poster I can relate to much more than pretending I know how to keep calm and carry on! Connecticut based Ross Moody designs and screen prints awesome things in his living room under the banner of “55 Hi’s”. These puppies are printed by hand on French Kraft using environmentally friendly materials which means that no two are exactly alike.

The humble sales receipt redesigned

Why are till slips so boring? Berg London rethinks the potential of this common, yet overlooked item.

Have you ever thought about the fact that a cash register is a connected device forming part of a world-wide data network? In this regard it is much like your computer or smartphone. Why then, is the output of this device, the common till slip, so… boring?

That is exactly what London based design consultancy Berg thought when Icon Magazine challenged them to rethink an everyday object of their choice.

We think the humble receipt could be something like a paper “app” and be valuable in small and playful ways. – Berg

The result of their exploration is a personalised info-rich little document straight from that uncomfortable place where low tech and high tech collide.

A heavy metal poster three generations in the making

A striking poster designed by Cincinnati based designer Tom Davie of studiotwentysix2.

A striking poster designed by Cincinnati based designer Tom Davie of studiotwentysix2. The description is quite entertaining too:

This poster is three generations in the making. My grandfather was thrifty and savvy enough to collect hundreds of pieces of discarded metal, my father was wise enough not to throw the rusted metal away, and yours truly, for picking through it, not getting tetanus, and visually arranging it.

Fruita Blanch

I really enjoy the look of Catalonian family business Fruita Blanch. The new fresh minimal identity was designed by Barcelona based studio Atipus. They even developed a custom font used across the board. My favourite aspect is how the labels have been designed to reveal as much of the jar content as possible. Sometimes less really is more.

The Click is a design consultancy based in Norwich, England. They recently developed a new visual identity for Asperger East Anglia, a charity dedicated to offering information and assistance to those who suffer from Asperger syndrome.

The result is a striking, crisp typographic solution.

Central to this is the letter ‘A’, initial of Asperger, from which the frank, literal title of each product extends – A Note, A Letter, A Message.
